  2. Any time we publish a review that takes a strong stance – positive or negative – on an anticipated game, we get a lot of feedback from our community. Beyond the unavoidable differences of opinion on the quality of a given game (there’s never been a review in any publication that everyone agrees with), there are interesting philosophical questions that arise around how we make our evaluations. In the case of last week’s Crackdown 3 review, two often-debated topics were raised: Why is a sequel that’s so similar to a well-regarded original now thought of as uninteresting, and what consideration should be given to a game that can be played for next to no cost? These are questions we actually spend quite a lot of time thinking about, and so now seems like a good time to shed light on how we approach those questions and the reasoning behind it so that you can have a better idea of how we review.

  3. The Ravens made the short trip to South Philly to face off against the Eagles. The Eagles were the beneficiary of early mistakes by rookie QB Lamar Jackson as they found themselves up 21-7 after 2 interceptions. Jackson showed maturity beyond his age as he kept himself composed and thus, kept his teammates composed as they were able to find rhythm on offense clawing and scratching their way back to tie the game 21-21 in the 4th. After a deflated drive by the Eagles, they found themselves stuffed again on what seemed to be their last try to win the game. Punter Cam Johnston had a spectacular kick pinning the Ravens down to their own 3 with 24 seconds left and 2 timeouts. After only a 1 yard gain, the Ravens decided to play a mind game and throw the ball against a weak secondary and a stacked 7-man box. This did not trick safety Rodney McLeod, however, as he was able to undercut the route across the middle intercepting the ball and returning to Baltimore's 7 setting up Jake Elliott to kick the game-winning FG. Philadelphia wins 24-21! POG: The safety tandem of Malcolm Jenkins and Rodney McLeod who combined for 9 tackles, 1 assist, 2 passes defensed, and 2 interceptions Stats (PHI-BAL): TY: 179-299 PY: 155-274 RY: 24-25 TO: 1-3 QBR: 62.4-91.8 Great game @tjspeaks! Always a pleasure playing you. Like others in the league - a chess match the whole time!

  5. ArenaNet, the studio behind the Guild Wars franchise, will layoff employees following the cancellation of unannounced projects, though game services for Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 will allegedly not be affected. IGN reached out to ArenaNet for comment, and the company confirmed the layoffs, stating it’s a part of a larger organizational restructuring within NCSOFT, ArenaNet’s parent company. ArenaNet send IGN the following statement: "We can confirm that due to the cancellation of unannounced projects, ArenaNet will make staff reductions. This is part of a larger organizational restructuring within NCSOFT in the west, but the Guild Wars and Guild Wars 2 game services will not be affected, nor is any upcoming game content canceled."

  8. It’s barely been two weeks since Apex Legends took the world by storm, and not only are many people playing the game — it amassed more than 25 million players in its first week alone-- but even more are watching others play the game. With 41 million hours of Twitch viewership over the past week, Apex Legends has more than doubled the watch time of Fortnite, which has been reigning supreme for almost a year now.Clearly, Apex Legends has quickly dominated the Battle Royale genre, but the real question is: how can it keep ahead of the well-established competition?

  10. I’ve played far too many games like Anthem, an online RPG that only makes good on its promise of meaningful multiplayer gameplay and progression after you’ve labored through its long-winded and repetitive story quests. These pitfalls don’t have to be synonymous with shared-world shooters, MMOs, or online ARPGs, but here we are again. Anthem's endgame is surprising fun since it's already excellent combat is reinvigorated by interesting loot and challenging gameplay later on. Unfortunately, there simply isn't enough of this kind of content to make it worth the wait, and what's here is inconsistent in terms of polish, clarity, and balance. Anthem, as it stands now, is an adventure best saved for a later date. Continue reading… View the full article
  11. The Nintendo Switch has notoriously held its value since its release, bar Black Friday when Amazon reduced it to £249. If you're one of those that are looking to get a Nintendo Switch on the cheap but didn't jump in on the Black Friday deal, you've come to the right place. I've highlighted my picks on what I feel are the best and cheapest Nintendo Switch bundles, games and accessories below (updated weekly). It's good to note that Nintendo Switch bundle deals right now aren't as good as they are in promotional periods such as Black Friday, but if you can't wait to get your hands on one, then these deals are currently your best bet.

  12. @SitnHereFlossin sounds good for week 2.
  13. Understood. What I am trying to convey is that my first opponent of the extended season is @X2KFootballG0dX. For whatever reason I thought that my first opponent of last season was vs you. Therefore the week that I will be unavailable all week until Friday (next week), is Run. I can play that highly overrated, over hexing, cheating bum at anytime. That Includes late nights & weekends that he and I have done previously. I have more flexibility the week I am scheduled to play you. We can keep our normally scheduled week as scheduled. Besides I would like to watch Friday's SFL game in its entirety. Thanks for your understanding sir.

  15. I almost forgot. My apologies about the stream. At some point in the 1st quarter my computer began an auto update. Run kept asking me was it completed yet, but it was taking forever.
  16. Week 6 - Bears @ Bears (Dazzo0007) Of course it had to be a defensive game between these two teams. Although we were desperately losing the time of possession battle, we found ourselves knotted at 7 going into halftime. The 2nd half generated no scoring. In OT 'da Bears capitalized off of their 3rd turnover, allowing Cody Parkey to redeem himself from that heartbreaking last second playoff game loss to the Eagles. 10 - 7 the final. GG @dazzo0007 Game Balls - Khalil Mack | With Daz on my 38 yard line, late in the fourth quarter, 4th & 2 he lines up to punt ... it's a fake. 1st down. Demoralized but battle tested, on the next play Khalil gets the game's only sack on the day, knocking Daz out of FG range. The defense holds, leading to the aforementioned OT. Cody Parkey | The winds were howling. But he managed to make the game winning FG with the ball sailing just inside the upright. TOTAL YARDS RUSHING PASSING QB RATIO FORCED TURNOVERS FLOSS 146 27 119 68.5 3 0007 191 68 123 59.0 1
  17. Despite reports suggesting the console version of Overkill’s The Walking Dead had been canceled, one of the game’s publishers has gone on record saying it’s simply been postponed. Confirmed by publisher 505 Games on Twitter, the company states "We just wanted to clear the position on the Overkill’s The Walking Dead on console and confirm that the game has not been cancelled, purely postponed whilst development is on-going. We will share further news as soon as possible."

  18. If you’ve been playing Apex Legends and have yet to part with any of your money, we’ve saved you the hassle of trying to figure out what’s what by spending 100 dollars in Respawn’s battle royale shooter. Because Apex Legends is free-to-play, microtransactions are inevitably going to be a part of its ecosystem. For consumers who are unclear with how mictrotransactions work in Apex Legends, don’t worry: all of them are 100% cosmetic, which means you can’t get an edge in the game if you fork out cash. You can actually see every unlockable cosmetic if you head over to the legend and armory tab. There are over 1900 total items with 4 tiers of rarity: common, rare, epic, and legendary. Players will have unlocked 45 total apex boxes once they reach level 100 and with 3 items per loot box, that means you are getting access to 135 free items. Continue reading… View the full article

  23. Ubisoft’s upcoming Skull & Bones game, which does not yet have an official release date, will be getting its own television show. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Ubisoft is working with Atlas Entertainment, which has helped produce various DC films and the true crime show Dirty John, to create the show. The project is being billed as a "female-driven drama set in the lawless frontier of the Indian Ocean at the end of the golden age of piracy in the 1700s.” The Mist’s Amanda Segel will write the pilot and executive produce alongside Atlas Entertainment’s Andy Horwitz and Richard Suckle.

  24. Sony has announced that Media Molecule's Dreams will be released in an early access form in spring 2019, and will cost $29.99 / €29.99 (no UK or Australian price is available at time of writing). The fabulously clever game/art/movie/music(/everything) tool will arrive as a 'Creator Early Access' version, containing a suite of creation tools and tutorials for using them. You'll be able to browse other people's creations (and remix them), a series of pre-made, customisable arcade games, and an 'Inspiration Gallery' of particularly impressive bits of work curated by Media Molecule. This version won't include the planned story campaign Media Molecule is working on, and the developer uses the press release to tell those looking for that to wait for the game's full release.

  25. The UK-based company, Exciting Events, has been "forced... to cease all trading activities immediately" following an unsuccessful and unofficial Fortnite-themed event in Norwich. As reported by the BBC, Fortnite Live was billed as the "Fortnite event of the year,” though it wound up angering parents who demanded refunds when it failed to live up to this promise. The festival consisted of a £12 ($16) entry fee, and additional £20 ($26) wristband for unlimited access to a single climbing wall tower for three people, a four-person archery range, four go-karts, and other activities. Speaking to The Guardian, attendees likened the attractions to "the sort of thing you see at a school fete.” Photos from the event also show a "cave experience" that amounted to a truck trailer "no bigger than a car, with a tunnel through it.” There was also the opportunity for visitors to play the free-to-play game, but this was allegedly also a paid attraction. The festival attracted an estimated 3,000+ attendees. Continue reading… View the full article
  26. Ubisoft has announced a PC-only technical test for this weekend as a dry run for the platform's open beta. "Our goal with this Technical Test is to assess a certain amount of fixes we implemented based on your feedback following the Private Beta," the dev said in a Reddit post. "This will help ensure that your Open Beta experience will be as smooth as possible." It won't be open to everyone, but players who have been selected will be receiving email invites today. Ubisoft has stressed that pre-order customers are not guaranteed to get in, as the invites are being "distributed at random to ensure a wide range of participants."

  28. @dazzo47 When it was decided that the season was extended, I assumed that the schedule would simply repeat itself. Turns out that I play @X2KFootballG0dX on the 1st week of the extended season.
